Darrell and I never met in person, but we spoke so often for work he always felt like a friend. A phone call from Darrell might start out about some detail of transportation law or contracts but almost always turned into a lively discussion, with wit, wisdom and true gentlemanliness on his part. My sincerest condolences to his family, Darrell was a good man and we will be missed.
